My Top 20 Songs of the Last 20 Years

In order to celebrate 20 years of the Hottest 100, Australian radio station triple j is currently running a feature on the Hottest 100 Songs of the Last 20 Years. In essence, anyone around the world is given the opportunity to vote for their favourite 20 songs since January 1st 1993 (they can be anything and everything, from the Lion King soundtrack to Eminem) and then from there, a list of the Top 100 is compiled.

"So what!" I hear you cry? Well so this, that's what. I figured that I wanted to get people's thoughts on their personal favourite songs and how they would vote in the poll. I was curious to see what my readers thought and so, here is your chance to get thinking and let me know in the comments section below!

 In order to get everyone started, here's the top 20 songs that I personally picked (and voted for)...
